  9. 9. 9  Blinds are “hard” window coverings, have slats or vanes that tumble down the blind as it is lowered or can be pulled across a window to stack lengthwise, to the side.  These slats complete blind and are usually controlled by a manual pull cord.  Closed tightly for privacy and for light control, but they can be adjusted or tilted at different angles to allow you to control the amount of light needed.  Wood, Faux-Wood, Woven Wood, Mini Blinds and Vertical Blinds are the most popular “blinds”.  These materials exude a tactile feeling of hard or bumpy; hence the name, hard window treatments..  Shades are “soft” window treatments which are made of materials on a continuous roll to cover window opening  . Shades are drawn up and down by cords or rolled up with a spring device. Shades have no slats or vanes and offer a smooth look to your windows; hence, they are called soft window treatments as the fabric and feeling of the shade is warm and flowing. Although you cannot adjust for light filtering, as with blinds, you can choose different levels of opacity for light preferences. BLINDS SHADES
